The Slight Mistake at the Heart Of Agile

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It's been over ten years since the signing of the Agile Manifesto and quite a bit has happened. Agile has spread throughout the industry and, rather than being an upstart movement, it is now considered mainstream. Over the past several years, however, it's become obvious that enterprise transition to Agile is not easy. Quite often it fails, or fails to yield benefits that are easily realized in smaller organizations. In response to this, we an adapt, or try harder, and those strategies seem to be pervasive in the industry. However, we can take time to question why it is so hard and consider that there may be a reformulation or change in emphasis which sidesteps the difficulty.

In this talk, Michael Feathers will explain a bit of the early history of Agile and talk about how there are organizations outside the Agile community that are taking advantage of a key insight that we missed early on.
